As overly formidable as it might be, bringing Timo Werner in to bolster their squad forward of each large membership in Europe would make an enormous assertion.

Since becoming a member of the Rossoblù, Piątek has scored 19 objectives in 21 appearances throughout all competitions, only one lower than Harry Kane himself has managed in an additional 10 video games.

The ahead’s type this season is attracting suitors all through the soccer league, so Tottenham must act quick in the event that they was Hull Metropolis’s golden boy on their books by the top of the month.
